(Newser) – Amid all the negative COVID-19 stories, a good one from Disney: Frozen 2 will be available for streaming three months earlier than expected, CNN reports. New Disney CEO Bob Chapek says the movie's "powerful themes of perseverance and the importance of family" are "incredibly relevant during this time." With Disney's own parks shut down, thousands of schools closed, and millions of kids homebound, this might give families a pleasant break. The animated movie will begin streaming March 15 on Disney+ and will reach other nations—Australia, Canada, the Netherlands, New Zealand—two days later. In other coronavirus news:
